Abstract : Preliminary tests of brazed Ti 8Al-1Mo-1V alloy sandwich structure at 1000 F are described. The panels tested were fabricated with 8-1-1 Ti faces and 6Al-4V Ti alloy honeycomb core brazed with Dynabraze B braze alloy. Cleaning procedures prior to brazing, brazing cycle, and aging cycle are reported. Copies of the x-rays of both brazed panels and photomicrographs of brazed joints before and after exposure at 1000 F are included in the discussion of results. Edgewise compression and tensile specimens were tested at room temperature, 1000 F, and room temperature after salt spray exposure to determine the strength of the faces and the ability of the core and braze alloy to support the faces.
